Whirlpool Dishwasher power surge results in flashing clean button

Hi, I need the reset sequence that the Whirlpool manual doesn't describe in the owners manual for dishwasher GU2500xtpq6. I'm sure it must have been a power surge as this has happened before an each time a repairman charge is $100. I can't remember the sequence he showed me so if you know it, Great!

    Yes, I know what paper you are talking about ... I have discovered the solution to be: Hit the following buttons (below) in this sequence within 5 seconds; then watch for the control panel lights to go on as it will prompt a diagnostic; if you know you don't need the diagnostic, go ahead and hit cancel. Then restart dishwasher.

    Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal

    I had the same problem only it wasn't a power surge...someone opened it before it was done...hence forth it locked up. I knew there was a sequence. When I called the tech wouldn't give it to me. Thanks you saved me a service call.

I'm not sure what the sequence would be on your particular model as Whirlpool dishwashers can differ in operaiton. However, if you remove the lower kick panel under the dishwasher door, there should be a tech sheet either directly behind the panel, or tucked inside the door. The tech sheet will list all troubleshooting tips and any fault codes that the owner/operator's manual does not list. This is the SAME sheet the repairman will reference when they come to your home on a service call. Please let me know if you still require assistance. I hope this helps you.

Whirlpool gold quiet 3 dishwasher flashing clean light nothing works i had to push 2 button and cant remember code to reset unit


Hi


If clean light is blinking then it may be an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry or high temp wash-heated dry-high temp wash-heated dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

The start light flashes continuously without interruption. It doesn't pause after 7 flashes. Dishwasher will not run.

Dishwasher quits running and clean lite keeps flashing.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If the clean light flashes, pauses, and then repeats. When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it stops working and locks the functions (clean light flashes, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water.

To resolve this you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...


-high temp wash

-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry


Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
